Slightly cloudy Amber color. Bland...and sweet. Not much aroma. Don’t catch any agave...or wheat.

From a bottle in snifter. Pours a copper orange color, with smaller white head. Fruity earthy nose with grapes, banana, lemon. Very sweet, low soft carbonation, slightly dry finish, some metallic flavors, herbal. Okay.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet wheat aroma with herbal sweetness, which I would have attributed to honey if I didn’t know it was agave. Wheaty and starchy with little hops presence. Decent but not my thing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Deep amber with small head. Moderately dark wheat beer with the faintest hint of agave. A bit of hops in the finish, but this seems pretty flavorless for a Greenbush beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Cloudy yellow with some deeper amber tones, off-white head fades rather quickly to a small collar. Aroma has a sweetness reminiscent of honey, must be the agave nectar (they taste fairly similar). Sweetbread, cereal grains, toasted biscuit, & soft wheat also on the nose. Faint lager yeast aroma (even though this uses German wheat yeast... strange). Taste is more grainy & gives off a slight oak flake taste, too. Agave sweetness sneaks in & the mid-palate into the aftertaste reminds me of a slightly sweetened corn flake cereal, only theres a moderate earthy bitterness thundering through & sweeping into the finish. Light hint of bread. The aforementioned bitterness grows over time & lingers quite long, gaining more of a dirty character as well. Mild astringency. Decent at best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl. oz. bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer at my pad for our little tasting. Many thanks! Second beer opened. To long-stemmed tulip, it pours a bright, effervescent orange with which an off-white head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of blue agave syrup, sea salt, coriander, woodruff, plastic, and rosemary. Tastes the same with the addition of wheat grain, aged hops, and Hefe yeast. Glad I got Sawyer, MI checked off my list...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from trade, thanks Jason. Pours copper orange with an off white head. Aroma is wet dog, banana, clove. Flavor is like 1/3 Pilser Urquell, 2/3 Allagash White. Basically a wheat beer with Saaz? hops. Interesting, but not a favorite.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep gold color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, wheat, biscuit, agave, herbal, floral, clove, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, agave, earthy hops, and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, wheat, biscuit, agave, herbal, floral, grass, clove, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness/spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, wheat, biscuit, agave, herbal, floral, grass, light clove/pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt, agave, earthy hops, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pale wheat ale. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt, agave, earthy hops, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
